CAIRO (AP) — Dozens of supporters of Hosni Mubarak have gathered outside a Cairo prison waiting for the deposed autocrat to be released after more than two years in detention.

A helicopter has landed inside the complex early afternoon on Thursday, apparently to transport the former president who is to be placed under house arrest after his release.

The development is a new twist in the saga of the long-time leader, toppled in Egypt’s 2011 uprising. He was ordered released after his lawyers settled one of the corruption cases against him.

But Mubarak is still standing re-trial on charges of complicity in the killing of nearly 900 protesters in the uprising.

Mostafa Mohsein, one of the supporters outside the Tora prison, says without Mubarak “the country is completely lost.”
